( updated ) Meet the A-Z Challenge 2016 drop-out ! I have to say that I admire the regulars bloggers that made a routine of blogging everyday. Thank you all for your encouragement and fellowship. You are great A- Z challengers. If I post once a month, I will have met my own blogging goal.
This will be a new cup of tea for me to participate in the A to Z Blog Challenge. More about it in this LINK. As I am genealogy researcher, I will be blogging in the genealogy genre but I have not picked a theme yet. Fellow GOON and genealogist, Roz, gives an excellant example on how this is done. Look out ! Roz has been doing the challenge for five years which I think is incredibly awesome !
Roz posted the A to Z Challenge schedule on her opening post. How nice, we get Sundays off.
I am already two days behind because I could not get my old Microsoft WRITER LIVE to work on my ancient laptop. Dear Carole and Jana pointed me in the right direction to find a substitute which is OPEN LIVE WRITER.
My father was a sportswriter. I have poets, history journalists and wordsmiths running in my family veins. However, I am not a writer at all but I want to share things I find so we will see how this challenge will challenge, albeit frustrate, me.
I was looking to see what genealogists are jumping into this challenge so I collected a handful doing the challenge.I may not have them all listed but will add them as I go.
Naturally, we start off with Roz at GenWestUK
Jill Ball is doing her One Name Study with the A-Z challenge.
I was totally blown away by the research of Kristin Cleage Her theme is writing about the descendants of enslaved people in the USA who were born free.
